  Would it make sense to include a Python implementation that wraps
aronud whatever low-level modules are needed?  Or to use the same API
and just replace the implementation?
  I don't know enough about the potential replacements, but it would
be nice to maintain the availability of the API; it's been available
for several versions now.
